Can handheld breathalyzers be used as evidence to convict me of an underage drinking ticket in Vermont?
I blew a 0.03 and denied drinking any alcohol. If I go to court, do I have a chance at fighting it because they didn't do a calibrated breathalyzer at the station? I read handheld devices aren't accurate enough to be admissible in court.
Most states do not allow these tests to be admitted. You will need a VT lawyer to confirm this is the case there....
I was jailed for 39 days after a dwi, was not told job was in jeopardy, and told when released I lost job. Unemployment denied.
I have an outstanding letter of recommendation from employer, and had been with them 4 years. I believe I am entitled to unemployment. The job and the benefits are from Putnam County NY. I was not even told that I had lost my job until I phoned them from jail to check in, and was told I had been terminated 3 weeks earlier, with no correspondence from them. Please help me.
Not sure what your question is here. I don't believe the cops have a duty to inform you your job is in jeopardy if you...
What is the easiest way to get my license back?
I had a DUI in NH, which i live in VT, and it was 3 yrs ago. I didn't handle my case properly and got convicted. My BF is disabled and needs me to bring him to his doctors appt and other things he needs as well. I have a different lifestyle than 3 yrs ago I don't get in trouble (arrested, ticketed etc.) I don't drink anymore. I don't think that i would get anything out of the programs, I don't live my life like that and well aware of the problems it might cause for whoever is involved. Not only for DWI fees but also the fact of what alcohol does to the body and mind. I was wondering if there was a faster way to get my license back?
First and foremost, talk to your attorney from your New Hampshire DUI. I assume your license is in Vermont. There is...
Can a person get their license reinstated in Vermont if they have a permanently revoked lic. in FL for 4 duis?
I know someone who has a permanently revoked license in Florida due to 4 DUI's. 2 out of state, and 2 in Florida. The last DUI was in May 2011 and he received his revocation in July 2011. This person has since moved to Vermont. He seems to think he can waltz down here to Florida and get an administrative hearing and get his license back just like that and be able to drive freely in Vermont. How realistic is this? I fear this person driving because he is a very active alcoholic. Will it be easy to get his license back after 4 DUI's? The last one he had a UBAL of .23. If he were to get a hardship/employment license reinstated. , would he be able to drive in Vermont? Florida law says he cannot even get an administrative hearing until 5 years after the last dui conviction.
Permanent revocation means just what it sounds like. That suspension should make him unable to obtain a license in any...

If a person knowingly gets auto insurance in their name, allowing a 4 time DUI driver w/ revoked license drive car, is it fraud?
I know of someone (and have written proof via internet messages) that a woman in Colchester, VT, knowingly financed a vehicle in her name and got insurance for the sole purpose of allowing a 4 time convicted DUI offender and documented alcoholic drive the vehicle full time. She lists her address as the home of the vehicle,yet, this drunk driver is the one solely in possession of said jeep. I found out they were insured by Geico and alerted their fraud dept. They investigated and dropped this woman from insurance for fraud. After that, she went to Progressive and obtained insurance. They are currently investigating the case. I have also let VT state police know and they are watching him. I have been giving tips for the past 6 months to cops and NICB. How serious of an offense is this
I cannot tell you the specifics above about Vermont law. I am a Maine attorney and I know in Maine this would be a...
